The Candlelight Vigil at DAP Seputeh, 19 May 2009

The Candlelight Vigil at DAP Seputeh, 19 May 2009

The reason I proposed to have a candlelight vigil at DAP Seputeh because DAPSY Seputeh was too quiet.
As a party, we should encourage to organised more activities because it is our duty.
Perak Politic Crisis at 7 May was ridiculous and unacceptable.
This is the reason we mourn for Death of Democracy,
with a white candlelight.

A police officer was tried to persuade us to cancel the function.
We decided to cancel the video screen up and speech,
and we will only light up our candle for 15 minutes.
But Police side was non-negotiable.

We have gathering right,
if PDRM try to stop us, it proved that Death of Democracy in Malaysia.

Teresa Kok, Jenice Lee and Teo Nie Ching were arrived at 8pm.
The candlelight vigil is still on.
OCBD try to stop us and Teresa tried to stop police for interruption.

Teresa Kok and comrades preparing for lighting up candles.

Teresa Kok negotiate with Police.

Our posters were stick it up faster, and we stand in a line,
and start for our candlelight vigil.
But police were surrounded us and seem like we are criminal.

We start our candlelight. Jenice Lee and Teo Nie Ching were handling candle, Teresa was not due to she was still negotiate with police.

While we stand in a line, police came and arrest us. We sit on the ground to against police arrest's order.

PDRM are really rude and nasty!!!

My friend, Lim Jen Yow was arrested as well. He said he looks handsome in this photo.

I brought to the Police Lockup Lorry with the other 11 detainees, but Police refused to let me into the enter lorry and warned me: you jangan jadi hero.

The 11 detainess were brought to Brickfield Police Station and there were many people came and support, including Lim Kit Siang, Tan Seng Giaw, Tan Kok Wai, Fong Gui Lun, Teresa Kok, Lim Lip Eng, Tony Pua, Lau Weng San, Charles Santiago and Antony Loke.

It was very crowded at Brickfield Station at 10pm. PDRM seem like afraid candlelight and standby Federal Reserved Unit to standby at station.
OCBD warned us twice to leave the station.
We said: PDRM is dark, that's why they affaird candle light.

Police had invited us to have candlelight vigil in front station because they catch 11 people.

FRU standby at Station

Police tried dismissed us, they write saman on vehicles which park beside the road.

Dr. Tan Seng Giaw also kenal saman.

When about 12am, PDRM said the 11 detainees will be lockup to the next morning. Male detainees to be sent to Pantai Station and female detainees to be sent to Travers Station.

However one of the detainee called us about 1am, said they will be released at 2am.
We went back to station to bail them.
While all of the detainees were released, it was 4am.

Because of PDRM detained people on Tuesday, we decided to have candlelight vigil on Wednesday in Serdang and Birthday Celebration in Teratai on Thursday.

People gave honours to detainees when they sent away from Brickfield Station.

All of us after all of detainees will released
